Members of the public are invited to attend Wrexham Glyndwr University’s (WGU) Annual Open Meeting – the first to go ahead in three years.

The meeting will take place on Friday, March 31 between 8am and 9.30am in the Gallery, which can be found upstairs to the main reception of the university’s Plas Coch campus.

This is the first Annual Open Meeting event held since prior to the Covid-19 pandemic – and will provide an opportunity for the Chair of the Board, Leigh Griffin and Vice-Chancellor, Maria Hinfelaar to recap on the university’s achievements over the past year, as well as share future developments around the ongoing Campus 2025 masterplan.

WGU Chancellor Colin Jackson will also be in attendance at the event. 

Mr Griffin said: “Our Annual Open Meeting is a chance for us at WGU to reflect on the past year, as well as share highlights and our ongoing plans and developments at the university.

“During the past 12 months, there has been plenty to celebrate, including us being ranked top for student satisfaction in England and Wales in the Complete University Guide. 

“For the fifth year running, WGU was also number one in England and Wales for social inclusion, and had also been ranked in the top 10 for teaching quality in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023.

“Of course, being in the post pandemic environment, it will also be a time to think about some of the challenges we have faced and what we have learned from those.”

Maria said: “We would love to welcome as many people as possible to our Annual Open Meeting to hear all about the progress and developments that have been made over the past year at WGU. 

“There will also be an opportunity to ask questions, so please do come along and get your questions in, if there’s anything you would like to find out.”

The event will get underway at 8am with breakfast and networking, before the meeting officially kicks off with the university’s highlights and future plans highlighted.
